Our Artisan Partners

Azizi Life partners with more than 27 independent groups in Rwanda – over 400 artisans… and growing! Rising from the horrors of genocide, artisans from all backgrounds have joined together once again through their craft. With their fair trade income, parents are caring for the health, nutrition, and education of their children. Families are building better homes. Women are rising out of crippling dependency to become contributors in their communities.  Our artisan partners are leaders for a hopeful future, and we are honored to participate in their vision.
